Description

Deep pink buds open to a peachy apricot with yellow shading in late spring to early summer on this cultivar, developed as a member of the famous Exbury Hybrids in England. Like other azaleas, it prefers a partially shaded site with evenly moist soils and an acidic pH (below 7.0). The root system consisting of a fibrous mat of small roots is near the soil surface and should be mulched to maintain a moist, cool environment.
